ABOUT SALLY GLOVER Fresh Faced founder and eco expert Sally Glover works as a freelance editor and blogger and lives sustainably in downtown Toronto. When she’s not sorting through her collection of reusable cloth bags, she edits novels and humanities textbooks to support her green beauty habit. Sally’s nonfiction, environment-focused writing has appeared in print and online at Ecorazzi, blogTO, and the Ontario Ministry of the Environment’s now-defunct youth webpage (Obviously.ca).


She also owns and edits Frugal Fashionista, a successful celebrity style blog. A childhood in idyllic Victoria, BC, combined with a long history of cancer in her family, inspired her passion for natural and nontoxic beauty products and the launch of Fresh Faced. She believes a safe, sustainable, and stylish alternative can be found for any skin care, hair care, and cosmetic product. Sally earned a Bachelor of Arts (Linguistics) from the University of Victoria and also holds a diploma in Business Administration (Marketing).
